Agriculture Skill Council gives affiliation to NICR, adds to it’s credibility

NCDEX Institute of Commodity Markets and Research (NICR), a 100 per cent subsidiary of the National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX), has received affiliation from Agriculture Skill Council of India (ASCI).

NICR has received the affiliation following robust protocols of ASCI, for its high standards of training as the ASCI affiliation is given to training institutions set up by private companies to meet the skilled manpower requirement for in-house needs or for the sector. Commenting of the affiliation, Mr. Samir Shah, MD & CEO, NCDEX said: “The ASCI affiliation has given the added credibility to NICR. The recent changes in the regulatory framework and architecture of Indian commodity markets are expected to open new opportunities in this field. I think the course of NICR will help to build skilled capacity creation for commodity sector.”

NCDEX incorporated NICR to fill the gap in research and education of commodity sector. It is promoting research and awareness in commodity markets. It derives its credibility and strength from its parent organization NCDEX, the leading commodity exchange of India. Commodity Derivatives market has witnessed phenomenal growth during last decade. Like any other emerging area, there is dearth of independent, credible and easily accessible research material on this subject in India. To fill this knowledge and information gap NCDEX thought of setting up NICR.

NICR provides a certification course, which is an impeccable training programme to help gain sound knowledge about Indian commodity markets. This course provides the comprehensive and practical knowledge of commodity markets. The course curriculum helps to understand the subject effortlessly in a well-structured manner. This includes fundamental and technical knowledge of commodities, risk management, regulatory framework, and commodity exchange functions.

NICR has collaborated with Pearson VUE, global leader in computer based testing for high-stake certification and licensure exams, to develop, manage, deliver and grow test programmes of NICR. Hence the exam patterns are world class and highly credible. The ASCI affiliation and Pearson VUE association along with the domain expertise of NCDEX makes the NICR Certification Course the best in its category.
